About Sean Palermo

4U! Prep | Tutor

Sean is a former private school teacher and child behavioral therapist specializing in autism, ADD, and learning differences such as dyslexia and dysgraphia. After publishing his thesis in pediatric psychiatry and graduating from Yale University with a Master of Epidemiology and Public Health, Sean became a behavioral therapist and private instructor for children with autism. At the same time, he began work in community outreach with a focus on K-12 education in low-income areas. These experiences gave Sean an appreciation for the value of mentorship and the power of education to open doors and change lives. 

For the past 13 years, Sean has been partnering with public and private schools alike to design SAT/ACT curricula, train instructors, and lead classes in an effort to help students from all walks of life achieve their academic goals. When Sean isn’t teaching, he enjoys writing, hiking, and astrophotography.
